Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Excellent story, well rounded abilities and insane combos
Pro Hardcore difficulty mode
New to the series is a hardcore difficulty mode that is meant for only the most extreme players. This adds a level of difficulty to the game for those that are interested.
Pro New character with new gameplay mechanics
DMC 3 focuses on a new character, Dante's brother Vergil. Vergil offers a whole new moveset when compared to previous games, which makes the gameplay fresh for those that are familiar with the series.
Pro Lots of different builds
There are multiple weapons that Victor can equip, and each has a different set of abilities and are used in a way that is very different from how the other weapons are used. They really feel like separate classes.
There is also a huge pool of equipment types (spells, etc.) that drop that supplement the various builds.
Weapons and armor also have stats and qualities attached to them too.
Pro Funny Dialogue
As you progress through the various maps, you have a "ghost" that tags along with you and pokes fun at Victor, the situation, or sometimes even you. He has multiple pop culture references as well.
Pro Map Challenges provide extra challenge
Each map has a set of five challenges that reward you for completing them. They range from things you would normally do anyways to things that are so difficult really have to change up your approach to get them.
Pro Acrobatic gameplay
Victor Vran ARPG is unique in the genre in that it's a very acrobatic and dodge-oriented game. In order to get far, you're going to have to learn how to jump, dodge, and dive around (or even on to!) your enemies in order to survive. This aspect of the game really adds another level of fun to an already good game.
Pro Incredibly diverse AI in monsters
The AI in Victor Vran is spectacular. It's randomized very well which leads to far less predictable enemies than other games in the genre, and it will really keep you on your toes which is a lot of fun.
Con Lacks widescreen support
The game only plays in 4:3, there is no widescreen support.
Con Terrible controller support
The default controls for the game with a controller do not work that well and will most likely require a third party fix.
Con It's practically impossible to play with mouse and keyboard
A keyboard binding exists, but it is impossibly complicated for anyone to use.
